According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Jaguar has announced a recall of 6,085 2010 XK and 2010 XF models over potential long-term problems with the power-steering system.
The recall is being conducted due to the fact that power-assist steering pipes were not assembled with the correct amount of corrosion protection. That means over time, corrosion may lead to pin-holding of the pipe, which could allow fluids from the power-steering to leak and cause loss of power-assisted steering. That would in turn result in difficulty to maneuver and an accident. The fluid from the power-steering leak could also ignite, causing a fire.
To fix the issue Jaguar will replace the power-steering fluid pipes with ones that meet corrosion specifications. For more info owners can call Jaguar at 800-452-4827 or NHTSA’s hotline at 888-327-4236.
